This instructable was inspired by the recent contest on instructables. The most difficult part of this project was creating the pattern for the doll and the doll's dress, Other than that it was easy to make. I am visiting with my daughter for the holidays and her sewing machine was not working so I made everything by hand. It really did not take that long, which surprised me. The embroidery work did take a little longer than regular sewing but embroidery is an awesome craft because you can take it with you and while your waiting for the children after school or a doctors office, you can work on hand sewing projects and relax while your doing it. It make waiting a lot more fun and just think of the time you save by making holiday gifts. Follow through and let's make Sally!

Step 1: Supplies

Assorted fabric scraps
Red yarn
Filler for the dolls body such as batting, straw, or rice
Black and white Socks with no match ( all of us at one time or another have a sock with no mate) and I used one black trouser sock
Embroidery thread
Pattern for doll and dress or make your own pattern like I did
Embroidery hoop
Assorted needles
Iron/and board
